This subject builds on the knowledge gained in research methods subjects by providing students with the opportunity to develop, under the guidance of an appropriately qualified supervisor, a research proposal using a selected qualitative or quantitative methodology. After receiving approval for the proposed research topic and being allocated a supervisor, students will complete a comprehensive literature review, followed by a comprehensive research proposal and preparation of a human ethical approval application for submission to a properly constituted Institutional Ethics Committee. This proposal will form the basis of research subsequently undertaken in the Honours Project/Dissertation subject.
No offerings have been identified for this subject in 2019.
